(WSB photo)

12:21 AM: A Seattle Fire response is on the way to a house near 47th and Graham in Seaview. Updates to come.

12:24 AM: Units arriving confirm it’s a “working fire.”

12:28 AM: One person brought out of the house is being evaluated.

12:30 AM: The fire is reported to be under control.

12:42 AM: One person is being taken to the hospital by private ambulance (which indicates non-life-threatening injuries).

12:54 AM: The scene commander tells us that what caught fire in the house was “rubbish” and damage wasn’t major – lots of smoke, and smoke inhalation is why a man who was inside is being taken to Harborview to be checked out.

    Thanks! Of course I can count on the West Seattle Blog. Further north on 47th and hearing loads of sirens.

    If you’re in Seaview and seeing brownish water through your faucets this morning, this is why. Iron sediment got kicked up. Will settle back down in a couple hours.

    Also, in regards to the brown water, I was advised by an SPU Rep a couple of months ago when my neighborhood was experiencing it, to not do laundry while the water is brown. He indicated that it could cause permanent damage to clothing that could necessitate them being thrown out. And a personal observation; I was still experiencing brown water hot water, from the water heater, for a while after the cold water had been flowing clear again. —Mike
